Conditions should start out good this week with small surf and light winds. By Saturday-Sunday, the building short-period west swell, onshore breeze and increase in tide flux will cloud it up a bit inshore. Boaters should keep an extra eye out for divers near the reefs and channel edges and divers always mark yourselves and area appropriately.

Visibility based on existing conditions and NOAA predicted swell and weather conditions at press time. Check up-to-date daily visibility/ conditions at the San Diego County Lifeguard info line: 619-221-8824.
